About Skulpturparken

Skulpturparken at Hollufgård is a different sculpture park, which creates an interaction between art, nature and the audience. Experience a cultural and natural landscape of outstanding diversity. Each year, we invite Danish and foreign guest artists to create new site specific works

The Forest

Glisholm is a protected forest that is run naturally. The forest includes the brook Lindved Å with migrating fish, a large colony of rooks as well as old meadows with grazing cattle. There is also a rare stock of Horsetail, a protected grass species that has thrived on this spot since the first Ice Age.

The Manor House

The oldest and central part of the manor house was erected in 1577 by councilor Jørgen Marsvin in stone donated by Christian I. from the demolished Hjallese Church. The main building with the three towers is still preserved. Both gables as well as the hanging towers and carnapps on the garden side are gone, but there are still fragments of the old moat. Hollufgård is one of the first Danish manor houses to be built in the Dutch style, which later got its big boom during the reign of Christian 4. in the 17th. century. 

The Garden

The old Renaissance garden was replaced in the 18th. century by a landscape garden built in the fashion of the day and filled with romantic curiosities. Today’s garden keeps some of the spirit of that time, and you can still enjoy parts of the linden avenues as well as Sneglehøjen, the artificial snail shaped hill from 1760, which contained the manor’s wine cellar.
